BMW likes to haul out the vintage CSL-inspired racing livery every now and then for their newer cars. I, for one, am not inclined to tell them to stop doing this.

The cars you see in these photos are the BMW M4 and new M2 with M Performance Parts for the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Lots of carbon fiber, Alcantara, wings, stainless steel exhausts, side skirts, the like.

The parts succeed in making the cars look pretty aggressive, but I’m mostly here for the white paint and now-famous red, blue and violet stripes. Does every BMW look better with this treatment? Yes. Yes they do.
